Susanna Epp's DISCRETE MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS, FOURTH EDITION provides a clear introduction to discrete mathematics. Renowned for her lucid, accessible prose, Epp explains complex, abstract concepts with clarity and precision. This book presents not only the major themes of discrete mathematics, but also the reasoning that underlies mathematical thought. Students develop the ability to think abstractly as they study the ideas of logic and proof. While learning about such concepts as logic circuits and computer addition, algorithm analysis, recursive thinking, computability, automata, cryptography, and combinatorics, students discover that the ideas of discrete mathematics underlie and are essential to the science and technology of the computer age. Overall, Epp's emphasis on reasoning provides students with a strong foundation for computer science and upper-level mathematics courses.

Susanna Epp's DISCRETE MATHEMATICS: AN INTRODUCTION TO MATHEMATICAL REASONING, provides the same clear introduction to discrete mathematics and mathematical reasoning as her highly acclaimed DISCRETE MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS, but in a compact form that focuses on core topics and omits certain applications usually taught in other courses. The book is appropriate for use in a discrete mathematics course that emphasizes essential topics or in a mathematics major or minor course that serves as a transition to abstract mathematical thinking. The ideas of discrete mathematics underlie and are essential to the science and technology of the computer age. This book offers a synergistic union of the major themes of discrete mathematics together with the reasoning that underlies mathematical thought. Renowned for her lucid, accessible prose, Epp explains complex, abstract concepts with clarity and precision, helping students develop the ability to think abstractly as they study each topic. In doing so, the book provides students with a strong foundation both for computer science and for other upper-level mathematics courses.

Taking an approach to the subject that is suitable for a broad readership, Discrete Mathematics: Proofs, Structures, and Applications, Third Edition provides a rigorous yet accessible exposition of discrete mathematics, including the core mathematical foundation of computer science. The approach is comprehensive yet maintains an easy-to-follow progression from the basic mathematical ideas to the more sophisticated concepts examined later in the book. This edition preserves the philosophy of its predecessors while updating and revising some of the content. New to the Third Edition In the expanded first chapter, the text includes a new section on the formal proof of the validity of arguments in propositional logic before moving on to predicate logic. This edition also contains a new chapter on elementary number theory and congruences. This chapter explores groups that arise in modular arithmetic and RSA encryption, a widely used public key encryption scheme that enables practical and secure means of encrypting data. This third edition also offers a detailed solutions manual for qualifying instructors. Exploring the relationship between mathematics and computer science, this text continues to provide a secure grounding in the theory of discrete mathematics and to augment the theoretical foundation with salient applications. It is designed to help readers develop the rigorous logical thinking required to adapt to the demands of the ever-evolving discipline of computer science.

Essentials of Discrete Mathematics, Second Edition is the ideal text for a one-term discrete mathematics course to serve computer science majors as well as students from a wide range of other disciplines. It introduces students to the mathematical way of thinking, and also to many important modern applications. The material is organized around five types of thinking: logical, relational, recursive, quantitative, and analytical. This presentation results in a coherent outline that steadily builds upon mathematical sophistication. Graphs are introduced early and referred to throughout the text, providing a richer context for examples and applications. Students will encounter algorithms near the end of the text, after they have acquired the skills and experience needed to analyze them. The final chapter contains in-depth case studies from a variety of fields, including biology, sociology, linguistics, economics, and music. Clear and concise, Essentials of Discrete Mathematics presents a unified and complete picture of discrete mathematics that instructors can cover in a single semester.

This Book Is Meant To Be More Than Just A Text In Discrete Mathematics. It Is A Forerunner Of Another Book Applied Discrete Structures By The Same Author. The Ultimate Goal Of The Two Books Are To Make A Strong Case For The Inclusion Of Discrete Mathematics In The Undergraduate Curricula Of Mathematics By Creating A Sequence Of Courses In Discrete Mathematics Parallel To The Traditional Sequence Of Calculus-Based Courses.The Present Book Covers The Foundations Of Discrete Mathematics In Seven Chapters. It Lays A Heavy Emphasis On Motivation And Attempts Clarity Without Sacrificing Rigour. A List Of Typical Problems Is Given In The First Chapter. These Problems Are Used Throughout The Book To Motivate Various Concepts. A Review Of Logic Is Included To Gear The Reader Into A Proper Frame Of Mind. The Basic Counting Techniques Are Covered In Chapters 2 And 7. Those In Chapter 2 Are Elementary. But They Are Intentionally Covered In A Formal Manner So As To Acquaint The Reader With The Traditional Definition-Theorem-Proof Pattern Of Mathematics. Chapters 3 Introduces Abstraction And Shows How The Focal Point Of Todays Mathematics Is Not Numbers But Sets Carrying Suitable Structures. Chapter 4 Deals With Boolean Algebras And Their Applications. Chapters 5 And 6 Deal With More Traditional Topics In Algebra, Viz., Groups, Rings, Fields, Vector Spaces And Matrices.The Presentation Is Elementary And Presupposes No Mathematical Maturity On The Part Of The Reader. Instead, Comments Are Inserted Liberally To Increase His Maturity. Each Chapter Has Four Sections. Each Section Is Followed By Exercises (Of Various Degrees Of Difficulty) And By Notes And Guide To Literature. Answers To The Exercises Are Provided At The End Of The Book.

Computer science abounds with applications of discrete mathematics, yet s- dents of computer science often study discrete mathematics in the context of purely mathematical applications. They have to ?gure out for themselves how to apply the ideas of discrete mathematics to computing problems. It is not easy. Most students fail to experience broad success in this enterprise, which is not surprising, since many of the most important advances in science and engineeringhavebeen, precisely, applicationsofmathematicstospeci?cscience and engineering problems. Tobesure,mostdiscretemathtextbooksincorporatesomeaspectsapplying discrete math to computing, but it usually takes the form of asking students to write programs to compute the number of three-ball combinations there are in a set of ten balls or, at best, to implement a graph algorithm. Few texts ask students to use mathematical logic to analyze properties of digital circuits or computer programs or to apply the set theoretic model of functions to understand higher-order operations. A major aim of this text is to integrate, tightly, the study of discrete mathematics with the study of central problems of computer science.

Wozu hat eine Einführung in die diskrete Mathematik ein so langes Vorwort? Was wollen wir überhaupt sagen? Es gibt viele Wege zur diskreten Mathematik. Zunächst wollen wir Wegweiser aufstellen, denen wir beim Schreiben zu folgen versucht haben; der Leser mag dann über unseren Erfolg entscheiden. Außerdem geben wir einige eher technische Hinweise, wie man nach diesem Buch eine Vorlesung halten kann, zu den Übungsaufgaben, zur Literatur usw. Hier nun also einige Leitgedanken, die dieses Buch vielleicht von anderen mit ähnlichem Titel und Inhalt unterscheiden . • Mathematisches Denken entwickeln. Unser Hauptziel, wichti ger als das Vermitteln mathematischer Fakten, ist beim Studen ten Verständnis für mathematische Begriffe, Definitionen und Beweise zu wecken und ihn (oder sie!) zu befähigen, Proble me zu lösen, die mehr als nur Standardrezepte erfordern, sowie mathematische Gedanken präzise auszudrücken. Mathematische Denkgewohnheiten sind in vielen Lebensbereichen von Vorteil, z. B. beim Programmieren oder bei der Entwicklung komplexer 1 Anlagen. Viele private (gut zahlende) Firmen scheinen das zu wissen. Sie interessieren sich nicht wirklich dafür, ob der Bewer ber vollständige Induktion im Schlaf kann, aber sie wünschen sich, dass er gewohnt ist, sich komplexe Konzepte in kurzer Zeit anzueignen - mathematische Sätze sind dafür offenbar ein her vorragendes Training.
